What are we?
<Knights of the Ridge> is a Chivalric Military guild based out of the lands of Redridge and a division of the Brotherhood of the Horse. Once a reclusive order of Elite Knights, loyal to House Isenhammer; The Knights of the Ridge have opened their doors to other who wish to follow in their steppes. KoR operates around the values of the Medieval Knight’s code, honoring oaths above all along with the respect of the virtues taught to all Knights. Those who are a part of the Silver Hand branch will be brought to learn the Three Virtues as well.
Due to a preference of Silver Hand, and Paladins, we have a Silver Hand branch led by Grand Dame Tamora Rolhelm.
The Guild is focused around RP-PvP. We also do standard RP, be it stand around RP or even DnD RP events, utilizing emotes and rolls.
Some events also include trainings that focus on the teaching and mastering of various weapons. Lectures and Seminars are held weekly to teach the Code and Values needed to be upheld by our Squires once they are Knighted.
Before the time of Knighting, two of the Squires to be Knighted are pitted against one another in a duel to test their knowledge. Spars, duels and jousts are held regularly to ensure the upkeep of skill taught.
KotR dabbles as well in a little political Roleplay in hopes to stimulate the Roleplay experience out of the Redridge Area.
We follow a simple and humble structure in terms of command following a Semi-Joint leadership.
Grand Master: Guild Leader and the individual with the ultimate command over the Knights
Grand Dame: Co-Leader. Retains equal power over the Order.
Guardian: The highest rank a Knight can aspire to after passing through the Knight
Champion rank. The Guardians of the Ridge are the Lord-Protector’s council and co-leaders, as well as functioning as Knight Champions. They have a say in everything that happens in the guild.
Knight Champion: A Knight who has shown his worth within the Order, and become an Exemplar of Chivalry and Knighthood. He sets the example for Knights to come and can take on Squires to train themselves. With the ability to take on squires, they are allocated land and title of Life Barons/Baronesses.
Knight: By passing the trainings and attending the seminars and lectures, the squire ascends to the rank of Knight. The Knights make up the majority of the forces within the Knights of the Ridge
Squire: The initiates of the Order. They attend the lectures, trainings and seminars, as well as accompany their Knight Master into combat to learn by example.
Militia Head: The Head of the Militia, ranks vary between Lieutenant and Captain.
Militia: The foot soldiers loyal to House Isenhammer who serve as a reservist force for those who wish to serve the order without taking vows of Knighthood. Militia follows its own ranks of Private, Corporal, and Sergeant.
Civilian/OOC: Non-Fighting individuals of the Order who contribute in whatever way they can
In KotR we value quality over quantity in terms of roleplayers and look for mature individuals. We do not tolerate any Drama whatsoever. We expect our members to:
-Have a decent grasp of Roleplay, we do not ask for only experts (Not that they are not wanted :P), but we are looking for those who have a good grasp on grammar and spelling. Expertise can come from practice.
-Have a decent grasp on Lore concerning Humans, the wars they have had and the background of the founding of Stormwind.
-Be level headed and mature.
-Be able to cooperate with others.
-Be willing to PvP or to level to begin PvP seeing as that is one of our main focuses.
-Have proper respect to your fallen foes in PvP.
-Be Human, Worgen, or Dwarf. Exceptions to Gnomes can be granted depending on the situation. UPDATE: We will now allow other races depending on their situation and Lore Background. (i.e Draenei, Elves,) Pandas are still not being accepted as Knights. They are welcomed as Auxiliaries though! Gotta love Pandaren cooking.
-While we do prefer Paladins, and Warriors, Priests are a welcomed addition as well as Hunters. Death Knights are allowed to join as of level 70 on the exception that they were a Knight of Stormwind before their…How should I say it…Death followed by resurrection?
How to join:
As of now, the process to join is by simply whispering one of our recruiters, where they will go through the process of interviewing you In Character. Interview takes into account your ability to emote. Grammar, spelling and details of emote/length. We’re not asking for three paragraphs, all we ask for is at least a half paragraph at the very least.
More information can be given by contacting: Daríth or Rolhelm.
